Yachana means “a place for learning” in the Kichwa language.
All tours have been developed based on this idea, which is so fundamental to Yachana´s mission that is to achieve sustainability through education.
You will enjoy first class accommodation and cuisine during your stay. Your multi-lingual indigenous guides will explain why Yachana´s focus is always on community and economic development with an emphasis on conservation and education. The tours give guests a glimpse of the culture and culinary aspects of the lives of the local people. Highlights include a visit to the Yachana Technical High School where more than 100 students from six Ecuadorian provinces are receiving a hands-‐on, practical education and learning to become entrepreneurs and leaders in their communities and to conserve the rainforest they call home.
The Napo Wildlife Centre, NWC Amazon Lodge, is the greatest and ultimate alternative luxury eco-hotel in the Ecuadorian Amazon. This ecotourism project includes the conservation of over 82 square miles of the most pristine Amazon Rain Forest within the Yasuni National Park, an important UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and the largest tract of tropical rain forest in Ecuador.
Yasuni´s amazing biodiversity includes more than 1530 species of birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish. The flora is as bio diverse as the fauna with more than 5000 species of plants.
The lodge is owned 100% by the Añangu Kichwa community working for the protection of this area.
